Representing Service Members And Their Spouses In The Baltimore/Washington Metro
When one spouse works in the military, his or her family is often put under a great deal of stress. Marriages that don't survive the stress of the military may face special problems that do not arise in civilian divorces. If you or your spouse is in the military, it's important to work with an experienced Baltimore divorce lawyer who can provide the legal counsel you need.
At The Law Office of Joseph M. Owens, we have more than 10 years of experience serving the needs of individuals throughout Maryland and Washington, D.C. Our founding attorney, Joseph Owens, served in the U.S. Army from 1988 through 2010, and his insider's understanding of the military combined with his legal experience help ensure we're able to provide clients the representation they need.
Who Receives The Military Benefits?
All military installations have support systems built in for the spouses and children of service members. After a divorce, the child and civilian spouse will receive support, and depending on the situation, retirement benefits may also be divided.
We know the complications that arise with military divorce, and we know how to resolve the matters effectively. For example, most military service members receive 30 days of leave once a year. Although that schedule is not conducive to traditional child custody arrangements, we can help our clients develop the creative solutions they need.
We know the specific issues that arise that make military divorces more difficult, and we have experience helping families find the resolutions they need. Whether you are a civilian who is concerned about losing federal benefits from your spouse â such as child care, health care or base housing â or you are a member of the military who is concerned about losing your pension, we can help protect your rights.
